What is Happening at the Border? Terror, Hope and the Body of Christ (GCC) Transforming the Narrative in Public Life (RBP)
It’s time we flip the script. It’s time we transform the narrative. For too long religion has been a wedge issue used as a tool to divide our communities along partisan lines. This conversation between Rev. Doug Pagitt and Rev. Dr. Stephany Rose Spaulding reimagines a political landscape where faith is neither held hostage nor at bay, but brought to the forefront of our political expression as we pursue the common good.
